Titleist 620 MB, Titleist 620 CB irons arrive at retail

Published

on

New for 2019 and 2020 Titleist has launched new player forged iron models the Titleist 620 MB blade and the Titleist 620 CB cavity back forged irons.

The new 2019 and 2020 Titleist 620 MB irons are a simple classic blade that any traditionalist will love. On August 30th, 2019 these new Titleist irons hit retail. From the initial launch at the U.S. Open, Titleist staff players like Jimmy Walker, Webb Simpson, and a few more put them straight in the bag. That’s saying a lot considering how hard it is for the tour players to switch so quickly.

The Gear Dive’s Johnny Wunder interviewed BMW Champion Justin Thomas on his upcoming switch

“It’ll be very easy…I’ll throw ‘em in the bag [when I start practicing again after the season ends].” “They are almost identical to the custom 718 MB I play now so there isn’t much to get used to”

LOOKS

I mean what can you say other than they are absolutely beautiful. The New Titleist 620 MB irons remind me of the classic Titleist Box Blades I saw when I was a kid. The design, the badging all of it are a nod to classic golf. If you notice anything different it would be a slightly boxier toe, slightly thinner topline and VERY little offset. Overall, they are hard not to love. The set progression from long to short irons gives the player a tad bit longer blade length in 3-7 and a boxier look in the 8-P.

FEEL

The new Titleist 620 MB irons feel like they look. Flawless, soft, responsive, precise, unforgiving by design and will check off every box an elite player would look for. The one-piece 1025 forging is soft but not overly. The sole has a good bit of bounce for perfect turf interaction.

LOOKS

Like the blade, the 2019 Titleist 620 CB Iron has gone through a total refinement process to get to where it is today. The overall look of the iron has similar tweaks as the MB but with a bit more beef for the player looking for some help.

Progressive set from top to bottom, thin top line, reduced offset and a tour inspired sole make this a pure player iron. HOWEVER some invisible tweaks were made to the set for a bit more performance namely the tungsten plugs in the 3 and 4-iron to lower CG and get the ball up a bit, which is something the tour players love.

FEEL

The 2019 Titleist 620 CB does what it says it will do. Thats the trick with both of these offerings, there isn’t anything crazy about them. They are simple and consistent. For players looking for feedback, workability and the ability to feel a shot from top to bottom, these have that. In testing, we did notice they aren’t as soft at impact in comparison to the Titleist 620 MB irons, but they still offer a that “heavy hit” players like and with the new camber in the sole, there is a microscopic difference between the two irons.

Which ones are for you?

GolfWRX.com always recommends you get fit! Keep in mind that the 2019-2020 Titleist irons are designed to be mixed and matched to make up the perfect set for you. Go to an authorized fitter in your area.

HOWEVER: If you must make a decision now, you can boil it down to this….trajectory. Pure and simple.
If you wanna keep it down and center contact is no issue, the 2019 Titleist 620 MB iron is the pick. To get it up a bit more, 2019 Titleist 620 CB is better. It’s that simple.

    If I had the game I would bag 4,5,6 CB and 7,8,9,W in the MB. Nice upgrade from the 718

    Can’t wait to see these in person, especially the CB short irons – they look a bit too rounded in the toe from pictures. Regardless, those MBs are pure.

Greatest Adams hybrids of all time

Published

on

It’s almost impossible that, over the past decade, you or someone you played golf with didn’t own an Adams hybrid. The fact that they can still be found in the bags of players on the PGA Tour demonstrates the kind of cult-like dedication some players have to those clubs.

They were in everyone’s bags—from low handicaps to golfers just trying to break 100. Simply, Adams was hybrids in the early-to-mid 2000s. In an age when many would still call them “cheater” or “old man” clubs, Adams pushed the envelope of design and ushered in a new era of small, workable-yet-forgiving, anti-left clubs.

Adams was also one of the first companies to do exclusive combo sets off the rack for better players with the initial Idea Pros and then later with the Idea Pro Golds. It’s a common practice now, but at the time it was revolutionary.

Here is a list of some of Adams’ all-time great hybrid designs.

Original Idea Pro – 2008

This is the one that started it all. After going through a number of tour issue prototypes leading up to the retail release, the Idea Pro had a lot of buzz, and it delivered. It wasn’t that other companies weren’t producing hybrids at the time, but the sheer popularity of the Adams outweighed what others had in the market thanks to it working its way to become the number one hybrid on the PGA Tour. It also came stock with an 80g Aldila VS Proto Hybrid shaft that was directly aimed at better players, and considering the aftermarket price of the shaft on its own, it made the Idea Pro a no brainer for those looking to replace harder-to-hit longer irons.

XTD – 2014

This was the final hybrid ever made by Adams and was packed with technology: all-titanium construction, crown, and sole slots for greater face deflection and ball speed—along with an adjustable hosel. TaylorMade had taken over ownership at this point and engineers at Adams took advantage by using the proprietary TaylorMade adjustable sleeve—this allowed for more shaft options for many golfers that had used TaylorMade hybrids in the past.

The entire XTD line from Adams was premium by design and from the driver to the hybrid, offered real-deal shafts and tight quality control. This is still a hard club to beat.

Idea XTD Super Hybrid Ti – 2012

You could argue the 2012 Super Hybrid XTD was the original bomber hybrid. Thanks to the multi-material titanium construction, it produced a higher-than-expected launch, along with exceptionally low spin. For faster players, this was a perfect control club off the tee and easily replaced a 5-wood (in the 19 degree). Don’t believe it? Check out this historic review from the GolfWRX Archives: GolfWRX.com – Adams Super Hybrid Review (2012)

Super 9031 – 2013

The Super 9031 was released the year after the original Idea Pro Blacks and featured an updated white paint job along with a technology upgrade that included both sole and crown slots for faster ball speeds compared to the original (hence the “Super” designation). It has a high toe, flatter lie angle, and open appearance from address—something better players love! Although I should attempt to be unbiased, I will admit that not only did I love these hybrids, but I still hold a place in one of my travel bags.

It’s not just me that has a sweet spot for the Super 9031, you can still find these in the bag of PGA Tour player Brian Gay.

Boxer A3 Idea – 2007

You might be wondering that after all of the others on the list, how the A3 earned its spot. Well, it’s quite simple. Just before the launch of the Idea Pro, the A3 and A3OS (oversized) were massive sellers at the retail level. The sets offered classicly shaped irons alongside easy-to-hit hybrid clubs into the longer clubs. Although never marketed towards better players, it did have a bit of a cult following to the point that even Vijay Singh was using one during the 2008 season in replacement of a 5-wood. They came stock with Grafalloy ProLaunch Red hybrid shafts and in both right and left-handed to outfit almost any player.

SeeMore releases new RST Hosel series of plumber neck design putters

Published

on

2020 SeeMore RST Hosel series

For 2020, SeeMore has introduced their new RST Hosel series of plumber neck design putters in 7 models.

Through RifleScope Technology (RST), the fluted barrel hosel aims to bring a new approach to the classic offset plumber neck in a design where player’s hands will sit slightly forward of the ball at address and impact.

2020 SeeMore RST Hosel series

For the first time in company history, SeeMore has combined a plumber neck hosel with their RifleScope Alignment Technology.

Designed for players to place their hands forward, the putters utilize the company’s RST alignment system which is often seen in the company’s straight shaft putters. The RST alignment system hides the red dot of the putters (to lock in your alignment) by using the lower portion of the new RST Hosel.

2020 SeeMore RST Hosel series

The RST alignment system is designed to provide a true reference point for golfers leading to an improved set up and stroke. Per the company, the technology ensures “that the putter face will be square to the target at set up, address and impact, with the loft of the putter also set the same every time giving a consistent roll on every putt.”

2020 SeeMore RST Hosel series

The base of the plumber neck in the new series enters the head on a single plane angle, at 70 degrees. The design aims to provide an entry point of connection closer to the sweet spot than a standard plumber neck – leading to improved feel and balance.

The 2020 SeeMore RST Hosel series are available to purchase now at SeeMore.com with prices ranging from $250-$400.
